RIP: Donald "Duck" Dunn, at 70
- -

Soul fans are mourning today as Donald "Duck" Dunn, a staple of the southern soul scene passed away at the age of 70.

Dunn was most notably the bassist in Booker T & the M.G.'s, as well as a highly regarded session player for Stax Records. During his time as a session bassist, Dunn played on recordings by Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, and the Blues Brothers. He also appeared in The Blues Brothers film.

Dunn leaves behind a legacy that's still echoed in today's contemporary music, reflected in acts as diverse as Lucero and Ludacris.

Usher x Lamb Mashup of the Day

Though he might be resting comfortably making money off of Justin Bieber, Usher is the subject of a mashup that finds 2009's "Papers" mixed in with the lamb that says "Yeah." It's groovy and it's a pretty BAA-d remix.

Drake surely has to be the clumsiest rapper alive. A few years ago, he fell on stage and tore his ACL and last night, while in the UK, Wheelchair Jimmy took a step back and fell on his tookus (as the Brits say), much to the horror of 13 year old British teens. Forward to 1:30 to see what happens when swag takes precedence over familiarizing yourself with your surroundings.

Bar Mitzvah Rap Video of the Day

Drake (aka Wheelchair Jimmy from Degrassi: The Next Generation) released two videos, one of which features Drizzy recreating his Bar Mitzvah...just in time for Passover! Huzzah! Sadly, this also marks Drake being a far more recognizable Jewish rapper than the Beastie Boys.
